Winter Camping and Backpacking Guide
Backpacking and camping in the winter can make for some beautiful scenery and challenging hiking. While it can be a great adventure, more preparation is necessary when the weather isn’t so forgiving. Thrifty Outdoors Man has a comprehensive guide to winter backpacking and camping that helps. There’s a checklist for those of us who ALWAYS forget something, great survival tips for the cold, and even some recipes for travel friendly meals.
Even if you don’t plan on a great expedition into the snow, if you live in a cold climate you can definitely benefit from the information in this guide. There are recommendations on clothing material best suited for layering, and ways to insulate your sleeping area in the event of a power outage. My favorite tip is a tutorial on how to make a camping stove out of a soda can and some alcohol!
